Re: change of heart...i want SQ!!!
Rear fill does not distort unless they are overpowered or played out of their frequency range. SQers dislike rear fill because it draws the soundstage away from the front of the car (Think rock concert). You really need to go to a shop and just listen to whats there and decide. So far i've bought 2 component sets without listening to them, and I hate both of them. The big key is silk tweeter=soft, any metal=harsh. But alpine tricked me, on the type-xs it is soft dome, yet is still harsh, and not clear. Just listen to anything you can, Also the entire board pretty much is going to recomend the CL-61a's even though over half of them probably havn't even heard them. I have, and they are good, but there are still better for not really that much more money.
